My favorite would probably be Suzanna. (Partly because my younger daughter's middle name is Susannah, in honor of my sister, whose middle name is Suzanne!) It's a classically pretty name, not overly used right now, and goes well with Dominic. From your list I also like Rosalind, Esther, Jemima and Gabrielle.
If you want to eliminate names with boyish potential nicknames, Victoria is out - Vic.

Lucia and Lucy
I like a LOT:
Isobel (I LOVE the full name Isobel/Isabel/Isabelle but honestly cannot stand Izzy- Belle/Bella is alright)
I think these are OK:
Suzanna (I don't really like the Z, otherwise it would be a bit higher)
I don't find any of your names awful- I only dislike Caitlin because of the popularity of the Kate/Cate/Kait/Cait names, and Jasmine because Jasmine and pretty much all of the J___son names sound really similar, with the J and the strong S and the N ending- and all the rest would be wonderfully refreshing in the sea of names right now. Good luck!-lists currently under construction-

You ladies have been super helpful, thanks ever so much. We've got it down to a top ten, now to try and crop it even more, and then find a middle. Good job we've still got another couple of months to go, as long as he or she doesn't decide to pop out early anyway!
Our top ten, and probably nicknames. As you can probably tell with Nico, we don't mind going against the norm (Dominic>Dom) when it comes to nicknames.
Abigail - Abby
Annabel - Anna or Annie
Elizabeth - we can't decide on a nickname for this, there's too many!
Isobel - Izzy
Imogen - Mimi or Immy or Genna/Jenna
Jemima - Mimi or Jemma or Jemmy
Rosalind - Rosa or Rosie or Lindy
Suzanna - Suzie or Zuzu
Tabitha - Tabby or Tibby or Bithy
We decided Tessa, Lucy and Ellen would go onto our middle name list though, as we like them but don't think they would work as a first name next to Dominic. I've also sadly crossed off Jasmine as not working with our surname, even though I think it's really pretty.
